Whenever something is announced for the 1st of April, you can mostly discard it as a bad joke and worthless information as juvenile minds tend to use this day to fake their untimely passing or announce Shenmue 3. The VGO however, always deliver the goods and on April 1st they will be hosting the very first video game related concert to take place in Boston’s Symphony Hall. This event will showcase and highlight the music that has paralleled the mainstream success of both video games and film. In addition to the orchestra, the concert will also feature a choir and a full assembled rock band. Nakama himself is very excited about the potential of the concert as he has been working hard on setting it together with both production responsibilities as well as handling most of the arrangements:

“This will be the first time that a concert held at the prestigious Symphony Hall will showcase video game music. It will also be the first time that industry leaders will be invited to a reception and a concert for the sole purpose of recognizing and enjoying the full artistry of video game music. -Shota Nakama”

In attendance will be Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger), Alan Silvestri (Back To The Future) and Wataru Hokoyama (Resident Evil 5). Tickets are now available at The VGO’s website, so make sure you grab yourself a few tickets and take part in the historic event.
